hi sry if this has been posted

found this cool pic and video... looks like a mask or even something else (see link)
www.rawstory.com...



Video released by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory on Monday showed a “fast moving jet of particles produced by a rapidly rotating neutron star,” but to some the image appear to more resemble the mask from Phantom of the Opera

In a description provided with the video, NASA said that the Vela pulsar was formed after the collapse of another massive star and it “may provide new insight into the nature of some of the densest matter in the universe

Raw Story (s.tt...)

That's an awesome picture!

Does anybody know anything about the 'plume' of particles or plasma possibly coming out of the top?




The "atmosphere" of the star is hypothesized to be at most several micrometers thick, and its dynamic is fully controlled by the star's magnetic field. Below the atmosphere one encounters a solid "crust". This crust is extremely hard and very smooth (with maximum surface irregularities of ~5 mm), because of the extreme gravitational field.

I don't believe them, lol. This is a lie!

It takes a year for the particles to reach the end of the visible plume so this is 8 image frames that have been sped up thousands of times and repeated several times throughout the video.

Yeah, our ability to resolve things like this, especially in the X-ray part of the spectrum is outstanding. I design imaging technologies and even so, 'am suitably impressed.
